    1. "Sometimes when life hands you lemons it's harder to make lemonade then that cheery notion suggests. In more trying situations the initial urge may be to use said lemon as a projectile weapon aimed at the source of frustration. The Pocket Therapist is a book for those lemon-launching moments in life."That description sets the tone for the entire book. With 144 techniques to help cope with anxiety, conflicts, and just life in general. Each of the techniques are designed to help us cope with the n [...]


    2. Here's a new idea: Let's choose someone to write a self-help book who knows what she is talking about. Someone who is not a researcher. Someone who is not a psychiatrist. Someone who is not even a therapist.How about picking someone who is crazy?!Yes, the author of The Pocket Therapist, Therese J. Borchard, claims she wrote this book by drawing on notes she took from "more than twelve years (i.e six hundred hours) of therapy" as well as "get-ahold-of-yourself tipslearned in the psych ward."There [...]


    3. the therapist in me was attacted to this title but the sometimes anxiety and depression ridden sides of me really appreciated her frankness and humor. I can't relate to her exactly but I did feel very validated in my own experiences with mental illness, it is nice to once in awhile feel like and realize that there are others who struggle and even though I may be "crazy" a lot of the imte, I'm not the only one trying to live day to day life with some extra obstacles to overcome sometimes. I liked [...]


    4. I won this book on and I started reading it yesterday. It has alot of practical advice for manuevering oneself through life's problems and petty annoyances. I really like the book and find it very helpful. I would highly recommend it.


    5. So, inspired by Bridget Jones (don't even start), I was browsing the self-help section at the library and this book looked attractive. Once I got it home I realized that it wasn't written by a therapist, it was written by a patient. I think that shows in a couple of entries that are specific to the author's problems. For instance, she talks about motivating herself to research her illnesses. Multiple people have told me to get off Google and WebMD of course, maybe I'm the atypical person in tha [...]


    6. Well worth going back to repeatedlyThis is at least the third or fourth time I have re-read this short, humorous and very wise book. Excellent!


    7. This book is a quick read, with short one or two page chapters that each have simple headings. I wasn't expecting much. I usually don't care for the sort of touchy-feely, feel-good, get-in-tune-with-yourself stuff, but I was hoping this would provide some sort of blueprint for introspection. I got a handful of interesting tidbits out of it, so it met my low bar.Ironically, she misuses some of her own advice in writing this book. She says that you shouldn't ask advice from people who are ill-equi [...]


    8. From my blogTherese Borchard has done it again! Her latest book, The Pocket Therapist is astonishingly brilliant, filled with insight, advise and wit as no one other than Borchard can deliver. The Pocket Therapist is an, as Borchard calls it, "emotional CliffsNotes" complied from her vast years as a patient. Each page delivers a reality check for whatever may ail the reader at the moment or merely leading the reader support. From facing fears, to being sincere Borchard leaves no stone unturned a [...]


    9. This is what my ever-eloquent mama calls a bathroom book. Each page has a new thought and a new piece of advice.I was really excited to get this book because I thought it would be a little bit more informative. In my mind, friends would come over, sit on my couch and we'd work out their problems from a clinical perspective. I was hoping this would be a very detailed book that was comparable to a psychology degree.Obviously, I dream big!This is less of a Pocket Therapist and more of a zen book to [...]


    10. To the author's credit, the quotes she chose to ruminate on are wonderful and provide the reader with some good fodder for meditation or journaling. However, to the author's detriment, she identifies as bipolar, OCD and has a host of health issues that are the foundation of many of her musings. I would add, IMHO, both narcissistic and borderline personality disorders to her list since she appears unhealthily obsessed with her own personal power, prestige, and sense of worth, plus she has appears [...]

    12. This was the second book I've won through First REads. Apparently Therese Borchard writes a blog about mental illness and this book is a compilation of excerpts from her blogs. Each one is probably no more than a paragraph or two. She draws from things her therapist has said, from religion, from her own experience with mental illness etc The result is a little book that you can easily pick up, read a page or two and then put away. Nothing in this book is heavy handed. Borchard is funny and a lot [...]


    13. I read about Therese Borchard in GUIDEPOSTS magazine and became intrigued with her blog. Her books had such high ratings on I thought I'd give them a read, since I am on the board of directors for a human services agency in crisis intervention/suicide prevention. This book is a compilation with easy-to-pick-up-and-read-in-a-few-minutes "chapters", usually just a few paragraphs. I liked that.This book made me laugh at myself in recognition. I liked that too.This book made me want to invite There [...]


    14. I was lucky enough to win this copy from . I am an emotional survivor myself, and found that many of Ms. Borchard thoughts mirrored my own beliefs. Ideas that aren't necessarily new but ideas you lose sight of when you are stressed. The 'kit' is 144 short snippets of advice on dealing with stress, depression, aniexty, panic and bi-polarism. It is not the kind of book that you sit down and read all at one time, but something to read when you are having a rough day and need a pick-me-up. Ms. Borch [...]


    15. Spanish / EnglishEs un libro ameno que con humor da consejos bastante válidos para temas serios. No es un tratado a profundidad pero sí es una buena forma de saber por donde encaminarse ante ciertas situaciones o de validar las opiniones propias (como lo fue en mi caso). Me gustó el libro, no puedo decir que es fantástico pero ciertamente cumple lo prometido./It is an entertaining book that gives valid advice in a quite humorous way about serious topics. It is not a in-depth treaty but is a [...]


    16. Honest, sometimes blunt and raw advices with a little dose of madness and insanity. But that's good, we all are a little crazy. You can read it from cover to cover, skim through it, dig deeper for some precious pearls of wisdom and discard what is of no use to you. But seriously, you might want to go through it and think about what you're reading. Maybe it's not the advice you need but it certainty can be the prompt, the kick your brain needs to start working on the solution.


    17. This is an excellent manual for anyone struggling with mental health issues. Some useful things that I keep in mind whenever I feel sad or anxious are:* Compare yourself to people who are worse off than you, not better* You can't unlearn your progress* When you're feeling depressed, make a list of everything you accomplished that day, however small* Don't give up unless you tried everything possible* Make an "appointment" for your worries at a future time


    18. My first thought a little way into this book was I was glad the author is not really a therapist. What she is, is an in-your-face author who shoots straight talk always. You are either going to love her or hate her.I didn't care for it, even though I laughed a couple times. I just felt like the old adage "misery loves company" played in here all too well. Not my thing.


    19. I liked it. The tips were all that I used in everyday life, and it was intriguing to see someone else using it too. The only thing I disliked about the book is the fact that it does not make a good one sitting read, it's more of a one page a time kind of read.


    20. Excellent no-nonsense advice for human beings. Regardless of your creed and beliefs, these pages offer honest advice for real life and its ugly moments. It's definitely not a replacement for actual therapy, but it's great support for those days when you just don't want do do anything


    21. I haven't started reading it yet - it just came in the mail today, but I love it already! It is cheery in green and lavender; a compact little hardcover book that feels nice to hold. It has made me feel better already, haha! Seriously - can't wait to read it.


    22. This is a delightful, funny book by a woman who has lived with bipolar disorder and drinking problems. It's incredibly wise, while remaining laugh-out-loud funny. Written in a 1-page-per-chapter format it's a quick and delicious read for anyone - troubled or not!


    23. Interesting writing style, as there are a lot of run-ons and not a "flow" to the book. However, this really helped me through a hard time in life and although I could not relate to everything, the parts that were relative to me truly hit home.


    24. won from first reads!! I started reading this right when it came. Has some awesome quotes and some funny/inspirational tidbits.


    25. Sounds like a humorous book to read, with the authors own real life experiences. I am definitely going to be this up to read the library.



    26. Lots of advice for dealing with depression, anxiety or simply living a more balanced life. Each section is 1-2 pages long. Perfect for reading in small sections.
